Early Interceptive Orthodontic Treatment
In most cases, orthodontic treatment is best left until all the adult (permanent) teeth have erupted. However, there are situations where early orthodontic treatment may minimise or prevent certain problems from developing.
It is recommended for growing children to have an orthodontic examination when adult (permanent) teeth begin to appear, (age 7-8) so that their orthodontic needs can be assessed, and advised if any early interceptive orthodontic treatment is required.
Comprehensive Orthodontic Treatment
Comprehensive orthodontic treatment is usually commenced after all the baby (deciduous) teeth are lost. The most popular time for starting comprehensive treatment is Year 7 or Year 8 at high school.
Braces are the most common and most efficient method of straightening teeth. There are many different types, from the traditional stainless steel braces (metal braces with colours, which can be changed as you wish); to ceramic (tooth coloured) braces which show less metal, for the more discreet look.
Other options are available for straightening teeth, such as braces fixed on the inside surfaces of the teeth, called lingual braces (IncognitoTM), and customised clear plastic plates called Invisalign®.
Adult Orthodontic Treatment
You can have orthodontic treatment performed at any time! So if you have missed the opportunity to have your teeth straightened in the past, it is still not too late!
Some orthodontic problems can only be addressed once growth has finished. Particularly difficult jaw problems may include planned orthodontic treatment and surgery.
Most adults feel embarrassed about the look of braces, especially in the work environment. 3M’s IncognitoTM Hidden Braces is one of the latest orthodontic options available for straightening teeth. They are completely hidden behind your teeth, custom-made for maximum comfortability and utilises advanced digital technology to deliver the most precise and targeted result. Just Orthodontics is one of the few certified IncognitoTM providers in NSW. For more information click here, or contact us.
Invisalign® is also an option. It is clear and almost invisible, and can be a good alternative for some people that do not want to have braces.
